After visiting the Memorial Museum of 1911 Revolution of Guangzhou in November, the museum written me to request assistance in collecting information and documentations regarding funds donated by Chinese in Canada (particularly the Chinese Freemasons 致公堂 in Vancouver and Victoria which mortgaged their buildings for the contributed funds), during Dr. Sun Yat Sen’s visit to Canada from February to April, 1911. The funds were for the renowned 1911 (Xianhai) Revolution that eventually lead to the overturning of the Qing government and establishment of the Republic of China in 1912.

The screening was featured on 99ys.com as the leading art event.
at the forum on the 2nd day’s screening.
Many audiences attended both day’s screenings (total 7+ hours).
Some actually travelled over 2.5 hours each way on public transit to get to the event.
